Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. That being said, we have existing Top 50 lists out and we always consistently look to update them when we can and based on necessity. As such, we are very happy to present our pre-2021-22 revision of our top 50 Philadelphia Flyers.
As for all of our top 50 players in hockey we look at the following:
1. Advanced Statistics.
2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the NHL.
3. Playoff accomplishments.
4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
Please note, that this is our first revision in in the last three years, and it has generated two new entries, one of which, should have been listed before.
As always, we present our top five immediately, although there are no changes from our last list:
1. Bobby Clarke
3. Bill Barber
4. Eric Lindros
5. Mark Howe
You can find the entire list here.
Jakub Voracek moves up from #23 to #18.
Former Defenseman, Kimmo Timonen, was incorrectly left off our inaugural list, enters at #27.
Sean Couturier climbs from #42 to #33.
Shayne Gotlisbehere, who is now with Arizona, debuts at #50.
We welcome your input and comments and as always, we thank you for your support.
